    Highly size-controllable synthesis of free-standing perfectly crys- talline silicon carbide nanocrystals has been achieved for the first time through a plasma-based bottom-up process. This low-cost, scalable, ligand-free ...
  • The synthesis and analysis of lignin-bound Hibbert ketone structures in technical lignins 

    Miles-Barrett, Daniel; Neal, Andrew; Hand, Calum; Montgomery, James; Panovic, Isabella; Ojo, Oluwarotimi Stephen; Lancefield, Christopher Stuart; Cordes, David B.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Lebl, Tomas; Westwood, Nicholas J. (2016-11-14) - Journal article
    Understanding the structure of technical lignins resulting from acid-catalysed treatment of lignocellulosic biomass is important for their future applications. Here we report an investigation into the fate of lignin under ...
  • Exploring the self-assembly and energy transfer of dynamic supramolecular iridium-porphyrin systems 

    Rota Martir, Diego; Hedley, Gordon J.; Cordes, David B.; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Escudero, Daniel; Jacquemin, Denis; Kosikova, Tamara; Philp, Douglas; Dawson, Daniel M.; Ashbrook, Sharon E.; Samuel, Ifor D. W.; Zysman-Colman, Eli (2016-11-22) - Journal article
    We present the first examples of dynamic supramolecular systems composed of cyclometalated Ir(III) complexes of the form of [Ir(C^N)2(N^N)]PF6 (where C^N is mesppy = 2-phenyl-4-mesitylpyridinato and dFmesppy = 2-(4,6-dif ...
  • Photo-affinity labelling and biochemical analyses identify the target of trypanocidal simplified natural product analogues 

    Tulloch, Lindsay B.; Menzies, Stefanie K.; Fraser, Andrew L.; Gould, Eoin R.; King, Elizabeth F.; Zacharova, Marija K.; Florence, Gordon J.; Smith, Terry K. (2017-09-05) - Journal article
    Current drugs to treat African sleeping sickness are inadequate and new therapies are urgently required. As part of a medicinal chemistry programme based upon the simplification of acetogenin-type ether scaffolds, we ...
  • Rift Valley fever phlebovirus NSs protein core domain structure suggests molecular basis for nuclear filaments 

    Barski, Michal; Brennan, Benjamin; Miller, Ona K.; Potter, Jane A.; Vijayakrishnan, Swetha; Bhella, David; Naismith, James H.; Elliott, Richard M.; Schwarz-Linek, Ulrich (2017-09-15) - Journal article
    Rift Valley fever phlebovirus (RVFV) is a clinically and economically important pathogen increasingly likely to cause widespread epidemics. RVFV virulence depends on the interferon antagonist non-structural protein (NSs), ...
